Any word on if there will be more Squadron Supreme members done?

Recommended Posts

I'd love to see more members of the Squadron Supreme made. Hyperion, Doctor Spectrum, Power Princess, Golden Archer to name a few. Any chance we will see them?

I would say the ones who can be made mostly be re-using other parts have a decent shot of making it into an avengers wave.  I'd predict Doc Spectrum next but no idea when.  

The problem is that Hyperion and Nighthawk are somewhat unique in that, in addition to being Squadron members, both have been around in the 616 universe for a long time.  I'm not sure you can say that about any of the others, i guess speed demon sort of.  So they are pretty obscure characters.  I think they showed up in Hickman's secret wars but i'm honestly not sure about how much of a comic presence the Squadron has had since the Gruenwald maxi-series (or even since the J. Michael Straczynski series)

Dr. Spectrum would be easy retool.  The others being obscure wouldn't stop them being made after all, we have Rock Python and Skullbuster, the seat-fillers of their respective teams

Re-paint Blizzard and give him a power prism holding hand and boom Dr. Spectrum.

Re-paint Nighthawk to his original colors and boom SS Nighthawk or Squadron Sinister Nighthawk.

Whizzer another easy re-paint with a new head.

A re-release of Hyperion in classic costume with an alternate masked head for the Sinister version.

I would prefer Spectrum with a different body mold, but it is the easiest

I think the main reason we got the 3 that we have was for other reasons besides the Squadron. Hyperion was a member of the Avengers at the time and they needed a swap for Sentry (yes I know it was a different character).

Speed Demon was obviously because of the Superior Foes book.

Nighthawk was a long time request not for the Squadron but because he was a main member of the defenders.

Princess and Spectrum haven't had that kind of following or comic expose as the rest. 

That's to say that they have no chance. The team recently appear in the Avengers book as the Squadron Supreme of America with new costume, except Spectrum, so they could be made because of that.

I honestly didn't think people cared about Squadron Supreme. I thought people kinda thought they were a passe thing (or even sort of a joke), it was on some JLA knock off business , I would be happy if we saw Power Princess, Lady Lark and Arcanna , but other then that I'm cool

I wouldn’t mind the main roster in classic costumes. What’s that make? Around 12 characters? Essentially the main Justice League right?

Superman (Hyperion)

Batman (Nighthawk)

Wonder Woman (Power Princess)

Flash (Whizzer/ Speed Demon)

Green Lantern (Dr. Spectrum)

Firestorm (Nuke)

 Aquaman (Amphibian)

Black Canary (Lady Lark)

Martian Manhunter (Skymax?)

Oberon ( Tom Thumb)

Green Arrow ( Golden Archer)

Hawkman ( Blue Eagle)

Probably take 10 years

It may take 10 years because they would have to slip in one of the characters into a related line every few years like they have started with the serpent society. 

The parts are there for extras like Blue Angels wings, the rest are easy repaints. 

Seems like Hasbro is starting quite a few teams like New Warriors, Serpents,   Alpha Flight ( box set knocked this team out).. be interesting to see if the rest off

After getting the likes of Skullbuster and Rock Python, you can't really use they don't have lack of following of comic exposure as a reason for them not being made.

Probably also worth noting that Speed Demon pegwarmed pretty hard, and it looks like Nighthawk is doing the same (not sure how Hyperion sold when he came out).  That could also be a factor in hasbro's decision to move forward with the rest of the team.  Have they had any presence in marvel comics recently? I think they had a miniseries during Hickman's secret wars.  I also thought the re-envisioned Nighthawk from J. Michael's work had  his own bried series (somehow set in 616?) but i may be misremembering.  In any case,  i think if the squadron have a prominent role in current/recent comics that would increase the likelihood of us seeing more of them in figure form.. although in that case they might end up wearing whatever redesigned costumes current artists have given them.

Think the most you can say is they have the same chance any other character does.

I wouldn't have thought we'd ever get a full Alpha Flight team, but here we are. Plus, the Squadron does have the advantage of appearing on the AA cartoon a few times. That kind of media exposure goes a long way with the bean-counters.

I don't really think it matters to Hasbro how much people care about them. Teams like SS, Defenders and New Warriors are just a resource for characters to serve as fillers in waves. I personally would love for them to finish any or all of these teams, but hell, they haven't even fully completed Avengers. And I'm not counting all those short timer characters like Doctor Druid, Stingray and Starfox. I'm talking about Falcon, Tigra and Yellowjacket and don't forget about classic Herc and Wonder Man.

Of course they are, though there are more prominent members they could have chosen.

    • Humanity aspires to prolong life expectancy, increasing its quality. Life expectancy is the expected (in the statistical sense) number of years of life remaining at a given age. In other words, it is the average number of years that a person or animal can expect to live. If in 1900 life expectancy was 47 years of age, it has increased from 45 to 63 years from the1950’s (Life Expectancy Tables n.d.). Thus, life expectancy is constantly increasing. This fact should make people happy. One might observe not only an increase in the proportion of the older population in the age structure of society and a gradual increase of life expectancy, but also a process called by scientists as “the rejuvenation of the population”. The population of developed countries, thanks to the development of medicine, keeps their health strong and a youthful appearance longer. It influences different processes, which have psychological, cultural, and social characters. Moreover, one should not forget that the real goal of scientists-gerontologists and all who are involved in overcoming aging is not only to increase life expectancy, but also to prolong health and youth. Increased life expectancy is a result of various factors. There are the development of medicine and health care, improving the quality of nutrition and living conditions, the development of technologies that help conserve energy and strength among them. A spread of set of cosmetic procedures of maintaining a good appearance such as plastic surgery, hardware and “pharmaceutical” cosmetology also makes a great contribution to the “rejuvenation” of the population. There is a trend in medicine called “anti-aging”. Moreover, many diseases and conditions commonly associated with aging have become “older”. Hormone replacement therapy also contributes to the health and activity of women. Such a “rejuvenation” of the population often gives a new emphasis to very different processes. However, the increase in the average age of the population has far-reaching implications as well as a serious impact on the planning and implementation of social policy generally. Nonetheless the UN is concerned because for the first time in history, by 2050 there will be more senior citizens over 60 years of age than 15 year old children. Current paper discusses why it happens and what problems life expectancy might cause for modern society. The Problems for Modern Society Caused by Increased Life Expectancy · Social problems. Some researchers believe that there is a problem of coexistence of generations due to the increase in life expectancy. Today, all the infrastructure elements of life are focused on creating the conditions for a full life of one generation, while at least two generations have the demand for it. Life expectancy increases, causing not only a joy a for person’s friends and relatives, but also new problems both for the state, and for all those who in one way or another are affected by the increase in financial expenses due to an increase in the duration of life of the retired. There are public and private pension funds, health authorities and social security. The need to pay more pensions depends on the amount of taxes that the young working population will pay. The increase in pension payments will require increased taxation so the state could pay all the pensions. The increase in the number of people who are over 60 will require an increase in the quantity and quality of medical care and service. In turn, it will require a large amount of additional financial costs. They will be required not only to keep constant supply and improving the level of medicines and medical equipment, but also to attract a growing number of health care workers. Moreover, much more old people’s homes and other care units must be built in order to provide all for seniors. · Economic problems. Due to life expectancy, a large number of people over 60 will continue working in factories and companies. Despite the improvement of the quality of their physical and mental health, they will still give way to the younger generation in power energy, speed of reaction and endurance. As a consequence, countries, which will be dominated by older workers, will be less competitive in the global market. Their level of economic development and progress will be lower than in those countries where the workers are young people. Moreover, equally important problem is the fact that increasing numbers of older people can cause them to compete with the younger generation in the workplace. As a result, the younger generation might perceive people over 60 rather negatively. Young people might begin to consider the elderly as those who deprive them of work. Mankind has always sought to increase life expectancy. Recent advances of various kinds of sciences, including medicine, allow people to count on a significant increase in life expectancy. Every day scientists create new kinds of drugs, antibiotics and vaccines that not only fight various diseases, but also prevent their occurrence successfully. In addition, the improvement of living conditions, nutrition and other factors that are characteristic of developed countries contributes to life expectancy. It seems that the increase in life expectancy solves many problems and allows people around the world to have a long and high qualitative life, constantly opening up new opportunities for self-development. Nevertheless, life expectancy may cause some problems for modern society. There is the need for large amounts of additional finance for social sector (pensions and health care among them. In addition, no less important can become an economic problem since a large number of older workers might cause economic decline.

    • Kang, classic Ultron, Annihilus,  Blastaar,  Super Skrull, Viper/ Madame Hydra. All these were in some previous incarnation during Toybiz/early Hasbro ML time. They need to be updated; I don't include Dr Doom because we all know he's coming. Couldn't resist putting these on: Super Adaptoid,  Count Nefaria,  Sebastain Shaw, Bushmaster. Far as I know they didn't make ML before (did Count N make Marvel Universe?) but it goes to show, Hasbro's got a lot of figures to draw from that haven't ever been seen.  
    • Would definitely get: 1. Mr Fantastic ("negative" uniform, stretch effect arms and legs if poss) 2. Thing ("negative" trunks, 2 fists, 2 open hands, one head mouth open) 3. Invisible Woman - clear variant 4. Human Torch- all red, translucent, correct body buck 5. Sub-Mariner - 70s "water wings" navy/black outfit 7. Super Skrull 8.  Annihilus BAF  
    • YES. None of that yellow head nonsense. Toss in some good flame effects and youre golden!
    • Great job! That alt head looks more like the Emma Frost we all know and love!
